Brushed by Contentment

Too much of this world fills our western eyes.

It is one or the other - this world doesn't fit with us or we don't fit with it.

Babylon's thinking is hardly a believer's habits. Surely its values and voice far too frequently grieve the redeemed soul?

The Apostle Paul echoes within us ... what fellowship does light have with darkness?

The way of the world is dark - it blankets truth's light.

A heart that rarely sings in tune with Babylon is free. When this beating muscle of life ceases to long for the shiny yet failing ornaments the struggle is won.

When yearnings can't disturb our spirit contentment brushes our soul.

But godliness with contentment is great gain. (1 Timothy 6:6)

The keeping of faith and promise do not marry to the holding of accumulation and desires.

A man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions. (Luke 12:15)

The man whose heart God's hands cup is already lifted into the heavens - he is secure.

Contentment fades Babylon's lure and drowns its voice. Babylon cannot satisfy, despite all its protestations.

Contentment alerts disciples to how fleeting this life is. It explains what futility life is given to. (See Psalm 89:47)

Trust is more important than increase - faith more valuable than gold.

Being brushed by contentment feels peace in the present. It knows an unfailing inheritance that never perishes, cannot spoil or will not fade. (See I Peter 1:4)
